watching us right now, we do expect president obama to travel to south africa for the memorial service for nelson mandela, hearing that from a source familiar with that kind of planning, and in just the last several minutes, don't really have anything more on that, about you as you heard the president saying in his brief remarks just a few moments ago, obviously nelson mandela is one of his heroes, somebody who touched president obama's life when he was a young man in occidental college many years ago, the first political act as a young man was to go to an anti-apartheid rally. that stayed with president obama all through his life. nelson mandela was sort of always with president obama, and as you heard in the white house briefing room, he said nelson mandela is no longer with us, he is with the ages. president obama tried to visit nelson mandela over the summer when the president was traveling across africa. he was not able to do that, because nelson mandela was sick, but he was able to visit with the civil rights and anti-apartheid icon back in 2005 when barack obama was a member of

president george w. bush awarded mandela with a presidential medal of freedom and president obama met with mandela once back when he was a senator in 2005. so right now as we await for the president to speak about the passing of nelson mandela. >> i know it will be some heartfelt remarks from the president because when you think about it, it's this nation's first african american president offering sentiments about south africa's first black president, clearly tied together by their roles in history and connected a number of times in person, the obama family connecting with mandela's family in south africa. again you're looking right now outside of nelson mandela's home in johannesburg where people have gathered to remember, to reflect upon the life of the man they call madeva. he is the father of modern south africa, dead at 95. >> interestingly right now a lot of south africans are asleep because it is past midnight in south africa. so they're going to wake up to this news. those who have heard, many of them, probably heard on social media. we saw some reports on twitter and facebo

right now on the economy. the one thing that's been a drag on that is the obama care debate of the president clearly has to put a line, a straight line between where he is right now and the positive news on the economy. so yes, does he really believe in this? yes. does it resonate with themes in 2008 and to some degree 2012? i view this principally as a way to get out of the funk. >> a problem. sequester has been a problem, government shutdown is a problem. the problem is the republican house that will not allow some sort of middle ground that democrats and republicans agree upon to move the economy forward. so you've got president now deciding he's going to rhetorically beat the economy forward along with these numbers. they just have to keep this drum beat going longer than two weeks. >> 2016 until someone can do something about it. >> it's going to be a problem sometime. maybe they should not have something new every day but talk about something every week. >> please not something knew every day. gabriel, we play that clip of john boehner. it's amazing he's reading from t

these problems with younger voters regarding gay rights and immigrant rights? >> you are right. there is the split developing between the younger half of that generation who were less impacted probably by president bush and more by president obama and the struggles with the economy and everything else. if you look at the polling, it shows a drop in support for democrats and the republicans have not been able to seize control of this. especially gay marriage and marriage equality. that is supported by the generation and for the republicans to take advantage of the opportunity that has been handed them, they will have to handle that really well. most on college campuses, you see here most of the republicans are much more supportive of the issue. it's not a threshold issue. it's critically important otherwise a wasted opportunity to seize support from folks who are looking for other opportunities to support different leaders. >> one thing that the president's reelection campaign benefitted from was turn out specifically about african-americans. they have the turn out machine for 2
